This global block affects all of University of Geneva (thousands or faculty and students). Our networking services indeed use an exit cache in order to optimize internal networking traffic spread over dozens of distributed sites. If I understand right, this proxy should forward an XFF (or whatever it's called) or am I wrong here ??. --Daniel K. Schneider 10:42, 1 February 2012 (UTC)

I have a problem by global block of static IP and block ID is 25936: Italian administrator user:Vito made this block and I don't understand reason! Administrator Vito blocked all wiki's projects: even all IP's talk pages were blocked. Problem is important because this IP is of 50 computers which are located in national library -Sagarriga Visconti- in Bari which is Italian town: we are a group of 10 high school's students and we made a lot of articles in various languages! In library there are books and we need freedom of connecting by library's computers! Italian administrator's step is without valid reason: I have registered account in Croat version and why is not possible to use it? No vandalism by IP was made: never in any language! All 10 us ask: may you to remove absurd global block? Regards. 16:42, 17 January 2012

This IP is used by a troll who on the English Wikipedia goes by the name Porgers and several sockpuppet aliases. I very recently blocked the IP for a period of six months because of a new instance of their harassment of a local admin here. Shortly afterwards, I received an email informing me that somebody had requested a temporary password for my account at Wikiversity. It is clear from their contributions that they have taken the war to that site. A global block is requested to stop the nonsense. --Favonian (talk) 00:12, 23 February 2012 (UTC)

I am a retired surgeon and during last month I connect to your site from the national library in Bari but now the IP is blocked in all languages​​. I don't know the reasons for your decision but it would be my intention to correct several errors in various medical-scientific articles in various languages​​: I speak several languages at an advanced level and I can write legibly. I ask permission to amend related articles. So I make this proposal: you would unblock the IP in question only experimentally? As an experiment you could unblock the IPs of the library and check their contributions: of course you realize my contributions because I will focus on medical-scientific articles, then they should find any vandalism from the same IP, as well proceed with a further block, then to collaborate on the project, I will connect to other computers. In short, mind you: I ask unblock for convenience as I stay many hours in the library. You regulate according the interests of developing the encyclopedia's project --Eziofavia (talk) 13:15, 29 February 2012 (UTC)

X mark.svg Not done Again, I gave you fully explanations, via OTRS, about the way to let you edit, you can ask for a global ipblock-exempt, then we will take a look at your behavior, in order to avoid a possible connection between you and Tamburellista. --Vituzzu (talk) 14:25, 29 February 2012 (UTC)

I request intervention of other steward because Vito's behavior is wrong in my opinion.--Eziofavia (talk) 14:52, 29 February 2012 (UTC)

Why do you need a block removal while you can simply use your own account. --Vituzzu (talk) 15:00, 29 February 2012 (UTC)

è una semplice questione di principio! Inoltre sei proprio sicuro che il tuo Tamburellista si colleghi dalla biblioteca? Secondo me stai inseguendo solo fantasmi danneggiando il progetto! Se non interviene un altro a sbloccare questa utenza, mi dedicherò a progetti più affidabili e sviluppati del vostro: ne stanno tanti su internet! Tento di spiegarti perchè non mi voglio registrare: non ho tempo da perdere in estenuanti discussioni con gente ignorante che affolla il vostro sito e leggendo certi concetti di molti utenti, un qualsiasi psichiatra capisce quanti siano i tizi con gravi turbe psichiche! Insomma non voglio essere individuato da un tale che potrei ritrovarmi sull'uscio di casa: sui giornali ho letto storie terribili di questo tipo! Statti bene e riguardati!--Eziofavia (talk) 15:31, 29 February 2012 (UTC)

Lol, sei già registrato...provavi a raccontarmi 'sta balla da un mese e rotti e ce ne è voluto perché ti rivelassi come l'ennesimo dei famosi "12 utenti che usano 50 pc"! --Vituzzu (talk) 15:39, 29 February 2012 (UTC)

tu per me sei un mistero! In biblioteca transitano centinaia di persone quotidianamente: altro che 12 utenti! Sei pieno di ombre che ti danno errate elaborazioni mentali! Ma tu fai finta o sei proprio così: intendo dire criptico? Non potresti impiegare meglio il tuo tempo?--Eziofavia (talk) 15:51, 29 February 2012 (UTC)

Non trovi che sia una buffa coincidenza che chi fa 'sta richiesta utilizzi persino lo stesso genere di insulti del tipo che ha causato il blocco e ha provato un po' di volte a mandare delle email per farsi sbloccare? --Vituzzu (talk) 16:13, 29 February 2012 (UTC)

???? Insulti? Ha provato un po' di volte a mandare delle email? Ti ho mandato un solo messaggio! Ma non hai ancora capito che ho già deciso di andare in altri siti di enciclopedie? Continua pure così: io ho finito il mio tempo! Mai ho insultato chicchessia! Forse sei annebbiato: stare tutta la vita davanti uno schermo sarà alquanto frustrante! Hai tutta la mia comprensione: prenditi una pausa figliolo e datti a una sana attività sessuale! Addio.--Eziofavia (talk) 16:39, 29 February 2012 (UTC)

Ricordo un insulto simile due anni fa o forse più, lo sai che questo genere di roba è notoriamente profferita dai più sfigati? Gli esperti del settore dicono che sia una sorta di proiezione. --Vituzzu (talk) 16:42, 29 February 2012 (UTC)

WizardOfOz... please. I have no idea what's going on, but promise me one thing. Do something else and come back tomorrow. You'll see things different then. Trijnstel 22:38, 11 February 2012 (UTC)
Whats going on? A Steward told me that I abused my tools. I wrote several times that if someone thinks so (one single person trusted with the same tools), I will leave. I can remove my flags self, but I want the account to be locked. --WizardOfOz talk 22:40, 11 February 2012 (UTC)
Again, please have a short break. I'll approach PeterSymonds about this. Trijnstel 22:53, 11 February 2012 (UTC)
Please don't do any of this. Wait 24 - 48 hours and you will see everything will be fine. I am sure you do a lot of useful work. An occasional mistake is allowed. Jehochman 22:57, 11 February 2012 (UTC)
(edit conflict) @ Trijn And again, I don´t need a break. And please just remove it, I don´t care about him as he told me what he thinks on IRC: Yes I think it was abuse. So if a steward think so, but don´t have eggs to handle, I need to beg other stewards, even if they are Ladies, to have more than he. I already wrote that if someone accuses me of misuse, I will leave. So now I want to leave, and those who accuse me don´t want to let me leave. --WizardOfOz talk 23:01, 11 February 2012 (UTC)
Hello Amir, just to clear few things again with my knowledge. I am sure you know this already.
"A Steward told me that I abused my tools" <-- This does not count at all. Stewards are no big deal. They have no extra privileges to decide something on Meta or anywhere. So please try to see him just as an user. Because he has steward tools, but he has no authority to talk over anyone as steward. I see you asked Peter to remove your bits on Meta. For your information, Peter can not do that, and nor any other stewards. Meta bureaucrats have the technical ability to remove sysop and bureaucrat rights from other sysop or bureaucrats as far as I know. Peter does not have bureaucrat here, as a result he can't use his steward access to perform that. So asking Peter for removal is useless.
At last, well I know what happened. And maybe you find that grossly insulting to you, but as Peter said it was not his intention to threat you a de-sysop, and no one thinks (and never thought) that your rights should be removed for that silly talk page block, and I am sure you are mature enough to understand that and assume good faith, I hope you will calm down and re-consider. I know you want the very best of the project. Thank you very much for your consideration. — Tanvir | Talk ] 23:10, 11 February 2012 (UTC)
IS this now a discussion page or what?!? I know that I can remove it self, but this is a request for account lock and not for desysopping. Do I really need to abuse my tools to get my account locked? I have a flag on three projects so please lock this account. --WizardOfOz talk 23:17, 11 February 2012 (UTC)
No, it's not possible to lock you now. We don't lock on request. Why are you acting so childish? Trijnstel 23:23, 11 February 2012 (UTC)
I feel sad I had to do this. Trijnstel 23:25, 11 February 2012 (UTC)
I don't really know what's going on here, but it sounds to me like Wizard is offended and upset because a steward's accused them of misusing their tools and they honestly believe that they haven't. I suggest everyone take a short break and come back and another day. 23:30, 11 February 2012 (UTC)

Global lock for User:Bruno Leonard

Status:    Not done

Here's a few links to show why he deserves the block:

The first 3 links shows his paranoid behaviors, assuming that completely unrelated users are sock puppets. The fourth links shows his frequents, almost constant blocks on Portuguese Wikipedia.--31Julho1985 04:11, 13 February 2012 (UTC)

X mark.svg Not done. Global locks are a very drastic option generally used in lieu of global blocks (which are not available for user accounts, just IPs) only as a way to stop accounts that are actively vandalizing multiple projects, (so that local blocks are ineffective) and that are engaged in little else other than vandalism. The Bruno Leonard account is not vandalizing multiple projects in quick succession. Users are not even locally blocked for making checkuser requests that get declined (probably that would only happen if they were doing it ALL THE TIME, and were asked to stop, and didn't listen), and even then, they certainly would not be globally locked. The fact that he has been blocked many times on ptwiki is not really relevant in this case; again, a global lock is generally used only when local blocks are ineffective in halting a user who is vandalizing across many projects. J.delanoygabsadds 04:32, 13 February 2012 (UTC)
I see your point. But my point is that he's a vandal on PT-WP and here on Meta-Wikimedia he keeps trying to prove random nonsense connections, while at the same time accusing genuine users of being sock puppets. Since he's already blocked at the PT-WP and he can continue to make these preposterous claims in here, I believe he deserves a global lock.--31Julho1985 04:39, 13 February 2012 (UTC)
Regardless, a global action is rightly overkill here; local actions can and should be precedent. fr33kman 05:04, 13 February 2012 (UTC)
But only a global action can stop him from vandalizing by accusing genuine users of being sock puppets. He has made that claim thrice, accusing dozens of innocent users in the process. He's wasting everyone's time and he is a proven bad user to have in this project. I honestly think that a global lock is deserved, so please enlighten me on why it would be overkill considering his local block is useless in here. 31Julho1985 05:13, 13 February 2012 (UTC)
The answer is no! fr33kman 05:22, 13 February 2012 (UTC)
Oh, thank you. I ask for a global block, which I know it would apply to this situation, you deny it with essentially no justification, I ask to you justify it and you answer like you're a god, who is a genius and is always right. Good to know wikimedia is in good hands. 31Julho1985 05:29, 13 February 2012 (UTC)
It was justified by both J.delanoy "The Bruno Leonard account is not vandalizing multiple projects in quick succession" and me "a global action is rightly overkill here; local actions can and should be precedent." Watch the personal attacks when responding please. No one insulted you! fr33kman 05:43, 13 February 2012 (UTC)
Well, I don't agree with these "justifications". So because it's not in quick succession it doesn't deserve a global block? I don't think so. And how would a global action be overkill if he's gonna continue to vandalize in here? A local block is useless on Wikimedia and if he's vandalizing it, then it's worthy of block on that project. Since the only block that affects Wikimedia is a global one, I think he deserves it. 31Julho1985 05:49, 13 February 2012 (UTC)
Also, Fr33kman, you insulted me. I want a simple justification and you write "The answer is no!" like you're screaming at me for requesting an explanation. It offended me so don't say that no one insulted me. 31Julho1985 05:55, 13 February 2012 (UTC)
I can not be held responsible for how you misperceive my intent. You don't like the answers? Run for stewardship. fr33kman 06:07, 13 February 2012 (UTC)
Misperceive? Like there's any other way to interpret "The answer is no!". You're so arrogant and cocky, I don't see how any reasonable person could elect you as a steward. I'm willing to bet that you have some kind of God complex, just because you have some power here. 31Julho1985 06:12, 13 February 2012 (UTC)

Global locks are used for technical reasons to prevent cross-wiki spam and vandalism. Local vandalism should be met with local blocking, and ridiculous accusations should be ignored. Don't swat a fly with a wrecking ball when a fly-swatter will do. -- Avi 06:34, 13 February 2012 (UTC)

Global unlock for Ikh Sukhbaatar

Status:    Not done

This user is a helper for the article Selena Gomez in Kabardian. Not related to vandals nor the former Friendster and current SelGomez vandal group Dragon2016 nor the former dissident Kungfu2187. He didn't do anything disruptively. --Википедия (talk) 23:54, 25 February 2012 (UTC)

Strange, you perfectly know the history of SGF...--Vituzzu (talk) 00:01, 26 February 2012 (UTC)
Selena Gomez Fan? Probably not. He supports her and Demi Lovato, while the vandals oppose them. --Википедия (talk) 00:06, 26 February 2012 (UTC)
You have no edits on, so how can you know so well SGFan's behavior? --Vituzzu (talk) 00:10, 26 February 2012 (UTC)
I have no SUL. SGFan's behavior is separated. Kungfu2187 is a good-editor-turned-abuser and a former relative of Dragon2016. The vandals against Selena Gomez and/or Demi Lovato, may call them Selena Gomez Fans. Ikh is not part of the SGF. --Википедия (talk) 00:16, 26 February 2012 (UTC)
Well, but you seem to be no active on, and actually to be not active everywhere, so how can you know so many details about Dragon2016, Kungfu2187, etc? --Vituzzu (talk) 00:28, 26 February 2012 (UTC)
Ikh is still helping with Adyghe Wikipedia, and its affiliate Kabardian Wikipedia. So, he isn't in his violation. He is not constituted as long-term abuser. --Википедия (talk) 01:50, 26 February 2012 (UTC)

Global unlock for WizardOfOz

Status:    Done

Ich bitte um Wiederöffnung meines alten Accounts. Da ich zu Überreaktionen neige, habe ich die globale Schließung des Accounts selbst beantragt, um mit den vorhandenen Tools in meiner Überreaktion keinen Schaden für die Projekte anzurichten (um nicht mal in Versuchung zu kommen). Da ich die ganze Geschichte durch Barras Schließung als erledigt sehe, und nicht mehr vorhabe mich in solchen Diskussionen zu beteiligen, bitte ich um Wiedereröffnung des Accounts der doch einiges an produktiver Mitarbeit aufweisen kann. Wenn möglich, würde ich auch um Reaktivierung des GR-Tools, der Adminfähnchen auf bs.wikiquote und bs.wikinews bitten. Wenn es die Möglichkeit gibt, kann danach dieser Account User:SomeoneBehindYou gelöscht bzw global gesperrt werden. Falls nötig, ist eine Konfirmation des Ansuchens auf IRC mit meinem Cloak möglich bzw gerne als Mail einem der Stewards die meine Mailadresse kennen oder auch ausserhalb von Wiki. --SomeoneBehindYou (talk) 16:52, 28 February 2012 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done, I have unlocked your account as requested. As users are allowed to maintain multiple accounts provided they are used within the rules, I don't see the point in locking your current account, SomeoneBehindYou. You might wish to redirect it back to your main or something on those lines, up to you. I do not feel I can restore your sysop flags due to the circumstances of your exit, I would advise, if you desire the flags back, that you run thru the normal process so that the community can properly confirm that the change in circumstances does not change their trust in you as a sysop. Regards and welcome back, Snowolf How can I help? 17:01, 28 February 2012 (UTC)

Please consider locking them for cross-wiki sock puppetry. And also, please delete Circball's files on Wikimedia Commons. Thank you. --Uncyclopedia (talk) 09:33, 27 February 2012 (UTC)

I don't see any cross-wiki abuse by these accounts. I don't think a global lock is necessary. Mathonius (talk) 17:53, 27 February 2012 (UTC)
